The international action continues this evening, with a host of our players set to be in action.
Emmanuel Adebayor and Togo will be looking to build on back-to-back wins in last month’s international break as they continue their African Cup of Nations qualifying campaign with a home match against Guinea, while Hugo Lloris and France host Albania in a friendly.
In Euro 2016 qualification, Vlad Chiriches is with Romania for their home test against Northern Ireland while Christian Eriksen’s Denmark visit Serbia.
Young midfielder Harry Winks, meanwhile, will be hoping for further game time with England Under-19s as they host Italy.
